Our GPS got us lost trying to find the hotel upon our arrival...we called the hotel and an employee walked several blocks and drove us to the hotel...customer service...you bet. The desk clerk, the bellman and the house cleaner were sincere and dedicated to make our stay memorable...the room was fine and the bed was awesome.

We booked this hotel because of its great location in Cortona and because we could park the car there. The car parking was a great help if a bit expensive at 20 euros per day but I guess they don't have any competition and can charge what they want. Our room on the 2nd floor was a reasonable size, well... More

We chose to stay within the city walls this time around and it was a good decision. The hotel is located close enough to the main piazza to not miss anything but far enough to be a quiet environment. Numerous restaurants and shops just a stroll away to enjoy and explore. The rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished. The staff... More

This is truly a perfect position for staying in Cortona. We had a lovely welcome and a very helpful porter. Our room was classic Tuscan style. Breakfast was good and could be eaten in the courtyard if desired. Our check out (young man, more interested in his phone- couldn't even bring himself to respond to my 'arrividerci) wasn't as friendly... More

Hotel in the center of the old city. It is possible to walk to the old town of Cortona from the hotel, very convenient position. The staff is very nice and ready to help with any need. Great place to visit Cortona

We did not stay here but ended up being stranded in Cortona without a bus or taxi in sight. The excellent concierge who spoke superb English found us a taxi when most were booked up due to a wedding, and very comfortably rested in lounge until taxi arrived - very grateful ++

This hotel is in the old city within close walking distance to many restaurants and shops. It is an old style boutique hotel that is updated, and absolutely lovely. Luxurious! and the price is right. The service was excellent, the décor fabulous ! Walking the old streets of Cortona takes one to a different age and place. Very romantic and... More
